Beginning Haskell provides a broad-based introduction to the Haskell language, its libraries and environment, and to the functional programming paradigm that is fast growing in importance in the software industry. The book takes a project-based approach to learning the language that is unified around the building of a web-based storefront. Excellent coverage is given to the Haskell ecosystem and supporting tools. These include the Cabal build tool for managing projects and modules, the HUnit and QuickCheck tools for software testing, the Scotty framework for developing web applications, Persistent and Esqueleto for database access, and also parallel and distributed programming libraries. Functional programming is gathering momentum, allowing programmers to express themselves in a more concise way, reducing boilerplate and increasing the safety of code. Indeed, mainstream languages such as C# and Java are adopting features from functional programming, and from languages implementing that paradigm. Haskell is an elegant and noise-free pure functional language with a long history, having a huge number of library contributors and an active community. This makes Haskell the best tool for both learning and applying functional programming, and Beginning Haskell the perfect book to show off the language and what it can do. Takes you through a series of projects showing the different parts of the language. Provides an overview of the most important libraries and tools in the Haskell ecosystem. Teaches you how to apply functional patterns in real-world scenarios.

Here is an introduction to functional programming and its associated systems. A unique feature is its use of the language Haskell for teaching both the rudiments and the finer points of the functional technique. Haskell is a new, internationally agreed and accepted functional language that is designed for teaching, research and applications, that has a complete formal description, that is freely available, and that is based on ideas that have a wide consensus. Thus it encapsulates some of the main thrusts of functional programming itself, which is a style of programming designed to confront the software crisis directly. Programs written in functional languages can be built up from smaller parts, and they can also be proved correct, important when software has to be reliable. Moreover, a certain amount of parallelism can be extracted from functional languages automatically. This book serves as an introduction both to functional programming and Haskell, and will be most useful to students, teachers and researchers in either of these areas. An especially valuable feature are the chapters on programming and implementation, along with a large number of exercises.

This book is a guide on how one can program in Haskell. Haskell is a pure functional programming language. The book begins by giving you a brief overview of the Haskell programming language so that you may know what it is. You are then guided on how to get started with Haskell programming. This involves setting up the Glasgow Haskell compiler which forms the heart of programming in Haskell. You are also guided on how to compile your Haskell scripts. Haskell marks the first programming language to introduce typeclasses into programming. This book explores this in detail. In Haskell, expressions are a common feature when writing scripts. This book guides you on how to use Haskell compiler so as to determine the kind of expression that you have written. Type variables are explored in detail. There are several typeclasses in Haskell. Most of these have been discussed in this book, and you are shown how to use each of those classes. Higher order functions are also examined. In Haskell, functions should only take one parameter. However, it is possible for one to override this mechanism and create a function with more than one parameter. This is usually done using curried functions. This book guides you on how to implement such functions in your code. This book guides you on how to implement the Lambda functions in Haskell. Input and output forms a significant part in any programming language. You are guided on how to obtain user data in Haskell and then provide them with output based on that input. The following topics are discussed in this book: - What is Haskell? - Getting Started - Types and Types and Typeclasses in Haskell - Higher Order Functions - Modules - Input and Output - Zippers

Racket is a descendant of Lisp, a programming language renowned for its elegance, power, and challenging learning curve. But while Racket retains the functional goodness of Lisp, it was designed with beginning programmers in mind. Realm of Racket is your introduction to the Racket language. In Realm of Racket, you'll learn to program by creating increasingly complex games. Your journey begins with the Guess My Number game and coverage of some basic Racket etiquette. Next you'll dig into syntax and semantics, lists, structures, and conditionals, and learn to work with recursion and the GUI as you build the Robot Snake game. After that it's on to lambda and mutant structs (and an Orc Battle), and fancy loops and the Dice of Doom. Finally, you'll explore laziness, AI, distributed games, and the Hungry Henry game. As you progress through the games, chapter checkpoints and challenges help reinforce what you've learned. Offbeat comics keep things fun along the way. As you travel through the Racket realm, you'll: –Master the quirks of Racket's syntax and semantics –Learn to write concise and elegant functional programs –Create a graphical user interface using the 2htdp/image library –Create a server to handle true multiplayer games Realm of Racket is a lighthearted guide to some serious programming. Read it to see why Racketeers have so much fun!

This is the eBook of the printed book and may not include any media, website access codes, or print supplements that may come packaged with the bound book. Interest in the Scala programming language continues to grow for many reasons. Scala embraces the functional programming style without abandoning the object-oriented paradigm, and it allows you to write programs more concisely than in Java. Because Scala runs on the JVM, it can access any Java library and is interoperable with familiar Java frameworks. Scala also makes it easier to leverage the full power of concurrency. Written for experienced Java, C++, or C# programmers who are new to Scala or functional programming, Scala for the Impatient, Second Edition, introduces the key Scala concepts and techniques you need in order to be productive quickly. It is the perfect introduction to the language, particularly for impatient readers who want to learn the fundamentals of Scala so they can start coding quickly. It doesn’t attempt to exhaustively list all the features of the language or make you suffer through long and contrived examples. Instead, carefully crafted examples and hands-on activities guide you through well-defined stages of competency, from basic to expert. This revised edition has been thoroughly updated for Scala 2.12 and reflects current Scala usage. It includes added coverage of recent Scala features, including string interpolation, dynamic invocation, implicit classes, and futures. Scala is a big language, but you can use it effectively without knowing all of its details intimately. This title provides precisely the information that you need to get started in compact, easy-to-understand chunks. Get started quickly with Scala’s interpreter, syntax, tools, and unique idioms Master core language features: functions, arrays, maps, tuples, packages, imports, exception handling, and more Become familiar with object-oriented programming in Scala: classes, inheritance, and traits Use Scala for real-world programming tasks: working with files, regular expressions, and XML Work with higher-order functions and the powerful Scala collections library Leverage Scala’s powerful pattern matching and case classes Create concurrent programs with Scala futures Implement domain-specific languages Understand the Scala type system Apply advanced “power tools,” such as annotations, implicits, and type classes
